The way I get python is to use the url in the book. 

For python2, I back up to the parent: http://www.python.org/ftp/python 
and get the max number that starts with a 2 (or 3 or python3).  That 
should still be valid.  My script uses 'curl -3 -L -s -m30 $url' to get 
the page, but for some reason, pages on some sites are not always 
fetched properly.

As you can see in this instance, the python page was fetched properly 
for python3, but not python2.   The next time the script is run, it will 
probably be OK.

Note that on the same page, mercurial had the same problem.  That site 
has a more frequent problem.
